15 spring odd jobs to get ya started

Here’s the sitch: You’re ready to start padding that wallet, and you’ve finally got a few spare hours here and there, but, well, you and little kids just don’t get along. Pet sitting sounds great, but there aren’t enough dogs and cats in your area to make a business worthwhile. Your next best bet? Shooting for odd jobs—especially with spring on the horizon. Here’s a list of tasks to get you started.


Pulling weeds


Painting fences


Organizing sheds


Power washing decks


Cleaning out pools


Decluttering pantries and refrigerators


Cleaning out closets


Trimming hedges


Planting vegetable gardens


Washing windows and taking down storm windows


Maintaining bicycles


Repairing spring clothing


Deep cleaning and beating carpets


Tidying attics and basements


Cleaning ovens and appliances



Here’s how to get the gig: Spread the word by posting quick little ads on social media and online community boards to let people know you’re ready to work. You can go door-to-door in your neighborhood (or just speak to neighbors you know, if Mom and Dad would be more comfortable with that). Hang flyers on bulletin boards in your local grocery store or library. And get out in the yard and get busy! When neighbors walk by on a nice day, they’ll see you doing major sweat equity and wonder if perhaps you could help them get set for spring. Tell ‘em you’d be happy to help them out and wait for the offers.
